Book Description

15 Sep 2005
This short but beautiful book, co-written by acclaimed singer-songwriter Matt Redman and his wife, Soul Sista's Beth Redman, explores how and why worshipping God can help us through times of pain and rejection.

The book includes deeply personal testimonies by both authors. Matt writes about the effects of the suicide of his father when he was only seven years old, and Beth writes of the pain of three successive miscarriages that the couple have suffered.

Matt and Beth feel the message of this book is one of the most important truths any Christian can learn, and it shares its title with that of Matt's new worship songs album.

4.0 out of 5 stars On the many roads marked with suffering 24 Nov 2005
By A Customer
This book looks at 1 of the biggest questions Christians struggle with. It gives many good personal testimonies of coming through suffering. I am not sure that all suffering is like Job and God given but what is not said enough is that when you don't understand your suffering it is the fact that eternity awaits does not changeand Gods love for you remains. God protects and holds us like the footprints poem says. What the book and the song do though is focus us back to the laments that we sometimes feel guilty about writing as songs or with God. I hope this brings up many more stirring songs about suffering. God does give and take away, but God also is there throughout, even if you have not been given God inspired suffering. What ever your theology is in that area.
Very well written, flows well and the writing style is good quality. A worth while read whether you believe in God or have searching questions that you want to enquire more about

This is a short and easy-to-read book on how Christians should respond to suffering. Matt and Beth talk about how they and others have responded at such times and they offer thoughtful and profoundly insightful biblical principles. The handling of the Bible is really excellent and their use of illustrations were really helpful to try and explore some of the mysteries of suffering.

This is a 'heart' book rather than a 'head' book as it deals so sensitively and honestly with the conflicting emotions that people experience, but it's just so wonderfully clear on God's character and how to hold on to what we know at times of difficulty.

Matt and Beth really shone for me as examples of people who have walked difficult paths, and don't belittle people's pain, yet still they are completely passionate about following God. I don't say this lightly, but I found their example inspirational, and really helped me get a good perspective back when my suffering had left me in a complete spiritual wasteland. This is an excellent book to give to anyone who is going through a hard time or experienced done kind of loss.

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent Book! 9 Dec 2005
By Felipe Fermin - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
I must say: I only buy books that I'm drawn to buy, not by just some simple emotion but I buy books that I really think -after praying- can be spiritually meaningful to my life in a particulary given moment. You see, some books can be a distraction and keep you of reading The Book you should be reading: The Bible. This one, you should read.

After hearing for the 1st time the song "Blessed Be The Name", I was touched and felt impelled to study the Bible and read all those passages that were somehow implied to in the song. Oh what a blessing! King David; Joseph, Job, a few psalmists, I found out I am not alone in this 'dark hour' of my life. I too, have chosen to say 'blessed be His Name'.

This book is definitely what I was waiting for. Deeply recommended.

5.0 out of 5 stars Dee Lundgren Christian Counselor Langhorne, PA 21 Nov 2010
By dee lundgren - Published on Amazon.com
As a professional counselor and mother who lost her oldest son at the young age of 22 this book ministered to the core of my heart. The book is all about worshipping God on the road marked with suffering. There is something so profound when one sings this song as an act of worship with tears in your eyes. There is a deep sense of God being pleased with this type of worship. In an age in which praise songs can lack substance in times of intense pain this book and song ministers to the the felt needs of people in their times of deepest grief.

5.0 out of 5 stars Blessed Be Your Name by Matt & Beth Redman 11 May 2010
By Ryan J. Rotman - Published on Amazon.com
As a worship leader myself, it's always a great thing to hear the writers of a song go deeper into the meaning of it. "Blessed Be Your Name" does just that and Matt and Beth Redman take us there as they talk about their song of the same name. This is a song I have used many times in worship sets and have seen how it can minister to many people in all kinds of different ways. The lyrics and meaning of the song seek for a response of worship and that response of worship is a choice. We are bound to run in to hard times, times of uncertainty, times of loss, etc. We must choose to believe in the faithfulness and sovereignty of God and learn to say even in the midst of these difficult time, blessed be Your name. I love how he incorporates lines from their song as chapter headings and then a personal story to enhance the chapter. Here are their headings:

1. My Heart Will Choose to Say
2. The Road Marked With Suffering
3. Though There's Pain in the Offering
4. Turn It Back to Praise
5. You Give and Take Away

I like how he also brings in that this song is also meant for times of praise. I had always thought it was written for times of suffering and hardship, but it was great to hear the Redman's say that this song is also meant for praise when things are going well. We have a choice and it's important how we respond. Matt and Beth Redman have written a great resource to help us focus on God so that not only in the times of abundance, but also those times of suffering we can give everything over to Him; He gives and He takes away, but still our heart will choose to say, Lord, blessed be Your name. I end with this quote, "In the life of every worshipper there will come times when worship meets with suffering. And these moments shape what kind of worshippers we will become. Yes, praise be to God for times of abundance and plenty in our lives-those carefree days full of peace and laughter. Yet we praise Him also in the wilderness times-those dark and stormy seasons of the soul when we're left crying out with the psalmist, 'How long, O Lord, how long?' (Psalm 6.3)"

This is a great book for personal study, but also group study. I'm sure it would be great for worship teams. There are even discussion guides for small groups in the back of the book.

This is a wonderful book for all who suffer, either physically or emotionally, and wonder how God could allow it to happen. It builds your faith and strengthens your soul. I highly recommend it to anyone who has lost a loved one. You will cry throughout, but gain much understanding and peace.
